Dialogue + Cleanup at the Landwehrkanal
Wednesday, 12 Juli 2023
Meeting point: 17:00 Uhr at Urbanhafen on the field in front of the boat restaurant "Van Loon"
Duration: 17:00 - 21:00
On Wednesday, 12 July, we will join you in cleaning the Landwehrkanal of plastic and other rubbish. We will start at 5 pm.
The Landwehrkanal is an important recreational area for the people of Berlin. Unfortunately, a high number of visitors also means pollution of all kinds. From disposable plastic packaging to bottles and cigarette butts, the water and wildlife of the Landwehrkanal are severely affected by litter and plastic pollution.
In order to raise awareness among users and give the canal back its charm, the Clean River Project e.V. and the GRÜNE LIGA Berlin e.V. in cooperation with the Wassernetz Berlin invite you to a kayak cleanup and discussion.
We will provide rubbish collection equipment and at least 20 boat places. If you are not able to participate at short notice, please contact us so that the space can be reallocated. If you have your own boat or SUP, you can of course simply bring it along. All those who prefer solid ground under their feet are welcome to join in on land.
A former researcher from the IGB Berlin, Christine Beusch, will be present to discuss the risks of nicotine pollution for water bodies and organisms in more detail.
Please register here to reserve a boat place.
